These tags are great for putting on suit cases or for travelling bags or for school bags.

Step 1: What You Will Need

You will need scissors, a lighter or some source of flame to whip the ends and the para cord. You can make this as big or as small as you want so I have left the measurements of how much para cord is needed open to you choice.

Step 2: Making Your Para Cord Base

I used grey para cord for my base and pink for the knot or the identification colour. first loop the para cord as shown in the picture, then knot it using both ends of cord but making a single knot.

Step 3: Making the Knot

The knot that I used is really simple it is just an in and out knot that continues as long as you like. It is a good idea to leave some room to loop your cord to put on a case or bag. the beginning knot is in the picture.

Step 4: Finishing

As you get to the end you want to double back through your previous loop on the other side and put the end through that loop. Then you use a lighter to whip or burn the ends and possibly the end and beginning knots to make sure that they stay together and tight. You can make them with many different colours but I recommend using a dull or neutral colour with a bright colour.

This is such a good idea for so many things!

Saw the potential with this immediately. Using a 12" piece for the loop, and another 12" piece for the wrap, I've made the perfect size to slip onto my fishing rods. Each color relates to a different line strength. From a distance, I know which rod I want to grab.

Fun design. And it never hurts to have some paracord nearby in case you need it.
